My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Hotel Westport. The staff were friendly and efficient, especially on our first night in the bar where the barman/waiter was extremely helpful and efficient. We'll be back!

Special thanks to Ceiline in the restaurant. She is a very helpful and hard worker and should be awarded adequately for her professionalism and mannerliness.

We booked Hotel Westport for the Santa's Grotto package and we were so impressed. On arrival the hotel staff were so welcoming, the room was huge and very luxurious, we were given a joining family room. My sons said it was the best room ever! The staff in the bar were so child friendly when we went into order food and there was a DJ playing music and my sons were up requesting songs which they thought was fantastic! Breakfast was really tasty the next day, it was buffet style or you could order off the menu. After breakfast we played crazy golf which was great fun! We could have used the pool but we forgot our gear. We walked into Westport for a walk around, it's so near town. The visit to Santa's Grotto was lovely my sons were delighted! Overall I am delighted with our stay, I'm already planning on going back next year with my sisters and their families! Thank you
